Meet Jeff

Since the launch of my webcomic, Working Actor (in progress), is still at least a couple of weeks away, I thought I'd introduce you to some of the characters that will be featured in the strip. Of course, the characters and their likenesses are subject to change by the time the strip comes out, but this is who they are at the moment:

I know I said I was going to have a lot of friends making appearances, but that's probably not realistic. It makes more sense to have a few regular characters the reader can familiarize themselves with rather than to dillute the comic with a whole swarm of guest appearances. There will definitely be a bit of everyone I know in the strip, but their essences will be incorporated into the main characters. Anyway, here they are, hope you like 'em:

First off is Jeff. As you can guess, he pretty much represents me... well, at least certain aspects of me. He's the "working actor" of the title, and since the webcomic will parallel events in my life, hopefully in the future "working" will refer to Jeff's work in the entertainment industry and not his work at his graphic design job. But until he can pay his rent and bills solely through acting, expect as many strips in his work office as in the casting office.

Tomorrow you'll meet Jeff's roommate, Mike. He's loud, overweight and Italian, but that in no way suggests that he's based on my own roommate Michael, who also just happens to be loud, overweight and Italian.
